Manny "Parrot" Hernandez wonders about his place in the world. His journey through work, school, family, gang, and friendship causes him to question the promises and blows of street friends, the good will of his lazy brother Nardo, the secrets of his beautiful sister Magda, the life of his hard-working mother, the drinking and anger of his father, and the innocence of his baby sister Pidi. Beneath it all, he is afraid that he will be the "Parrot that complains how hot it is in the shade, while sitting inside an oven." In telling his story, he makes us wonder if we are all parrots in the oven.
